No need to wonder “What’s Next” for Drake. On Tuesday, it was announced that the rapper has teamed up with Live Nation to bring a new music venue to his hometown of Toronto. 

The venue, called History, holds an intimate capacity audience of 2,500, something the 34-year-old rapper believes will be memorable for artists and fans alike.

“Some of my most memorable shows were playing smaller rooms like History,” said Drake in a statement, according to Variety. “I wanted to take those memories and what I learned to create an incredible experience for both the artists and the fans.”

After more than three years in development, History is set to open its doors later this summer. The venue will offer a multitude of seating configurations that will allow a variety of events to take place there. Per the announcement, the space will “offer artists a versatile and intimate destination to perform and connect with fans in Toronto,” with plans to host 200 concerts and events annually.
